Francesco Bonifazi
Please leave Me Alone
See all songs
I've hearing all my life
What is wrong and what is right
So many theories with little success
And all they've done is leave us a mess

So just please leave me alone
And let me think on my own

Now prophets come and prophets go
Which one's right - I just don't know
Jesus, Mohammed and Buddha too
One might sing a sweet song to you

But please leave me alone
I'll just go and think on my own

Some things are plain to see
Don't need no holy trinity
Watch where you point that gun
Be kind and love everyone

Rabbis, priests and Imam too
You've turned this world into a goddam zoo
Tearing us apart with your holy decrees
How that makes sense if a mystery to me

Peace and love and brotherhood
Man that all sounds real good
But how can I believe anytihng you say
When your atom bomb is heading my way

Charlemagne took Jerusalem Bible in-hand
The sword of Islam stuck back again
Why do we focus on some damn piece of land
When poor people starve at your anointed hands
How said times are a changing?
How said times are a changing?
How said times are a changing?

The smoke has cleared now we can see
And we might chose to disagree
We can talk - sit down and chat
Just leave your dogma - had enough of that
So please leave me alone
I'll just think on my own
So please leave me alone
What I believe is my own!

Story Behind the Song:
I'm seeing the world as a bunch of tribes who follow leaders without concern about people who are different than themselves.

People need to think for themselves - not just take a dogma for a walk.
